Intimate glimpse into a gentle world

by ConstantReeder (WorldCat user published 2014-02-22) Very Good Permalink

Garrison Keillor has his take on the Scandinavians. This is quite a better, more intimate view of life long ago for those same people. Recommended for anyone who wants a slow, real look at life in old North Dakota through the steam of an afternoon cup of coffee with friends and family.
